Question about 1991 Subaru Loyale

1 Answer

Starter clicks but wont turn over,

I just bought this car on Jan 5th, 09. I knew the starter was going but thought it would last longer.
I've had to turn the key twice and it would fire right up. this morning it clicks, all the lights and accesories licht up and are ready to go, but it wont turn over......
Is it the starter .... ignition, cylanoid, ... or what.....
What do I need to buy?

Thanks,
Jennifer

1st check the battery. It can power the lights and radio, but not be able to turn the engine over. Take it out and bring it to a parts store, they will check it for free and let u know the battery's condition. If the battery checks out ok, but has a low charge, then u should check out the alternator, to see if it's not charging the battery properly. And yes, it could be the starter, but check the battery and alt. 1st. If charging system is good, u can remove the starter and bring it in to the parts store for a free check to see if it's functioning properly, So let me know how things check out, I'll help further as u check out the above.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

DO you hear a clicking when you turn the key to start? Solenoid relay make a click sound when energized.
If the solenoid is not mounted on the starter motor then it will be near the battery
The key switch sends power to the solenoid. the solenid is a big remote controlled switch,and it takes power from the battery to the starter motor

If car wont start and clicking sound is heard this is a battery related or starter related, if your car battery is in good condition (which I think it was) then the problem is your starter, have it check to confirm.

Hmmm. Don't be too hasty replacing the starter. With no exterior lights working it suggests an open circuit in the system that could relate to your starting problem. Start with your fuses that are related to lighting and starting. Check connections for corrosion and rust.

weak fuel pump, clogged injectors, air or coolant temp sensors out of specs. Timing belt was put on wrong. Timing is off. Map sensor out of specs. You do have a light on. Fixing why the light is on may fix your problem.
